Norman Deeks on top of one of the gasholders in Quay Lane c1960." The largest gasholder was 90 feet high. We had to climb up the outside, and all we had between us and eternity was a two-inch thick iron ladder. There were no harnesses or anything like that."" I still wonder how I did it. You wouldn't even attempt it today. You couldn't - with all the health and safety rules."
